Out of the park gone.
No longer in the building gone. Get what I am saying to you?
Pushing papers, answering phones, worrying if a reservation was made correctly, caring whose fault something is... I just couldn't wrap my brain around that any longer. What totally used to by my jam was no longer there. Not saying I couldn't do the job, I did and I believe I did it well. But everyday I felt a part of my real self disappearing, and that my candle was dimming... and worse? I was missing my Grom's appointments and school events. I was tired. So tired.
The company I was with was fantastic. The people were even better. I am even still dabbling there a couple of mornings a week part time just because it benefits us both for the time being. I am so honored and humbled with that.
But I discovered that I have changed.
"Ok, let's do this."
Those words were exactly what my heart needed to hear.
I will still be painting furniture and I look forward to doing custom work for you. I love custom jobs and enabling my clients to love their own things again. Taking a piece from their attic and turning into the focus point in a room just makes my heart soar.
I will still be painting art and teaching art classes. I love the One Stroke method and will continue teaching that technique.

I hope you stick with me as I navigate these changes and continue to raise my family and hit the beach whenever possible. The blog will turn a bit more personal as I will be documenting growing as a small business working wife and Momma who really just wishes she was a mermaid. Of course, don't we all?
